Rick Parry- doubling down on Parachute Payments, EFL Reform, Wage Caps possibly


Recommended Posts

His comments during the suspension of football, he is doubling down it would seem.

https://uk.sports.yahoo.com/news/efl-chairman-rick-parry-aiming-074607275.html

Will be behind a paywall, but there is a Times interview with him on this subject. This has some of it. They will apparently be reduced too due to Covid, clearly in terms of rebates or similar.

Also notable that the wage cap in the bottom 2 Leagues is gathering pace.

Squad size limits in general are being looked at there- proposed limit of 20 with some allowances, for age and youth etc.

Parry though! :clapping::clap:

He's had a very good pandemic (good war, bad war), indeed. I expect the Championship will be quite a bit more complex.

Better by far than his predecessor- EFL seems in fairly safe hands here...

Parachute payments I've always said a team should get 1 years salary for all players at the time of relegation, its then paid monthly to prevent it being splashed on players. If a player leaves their wage contribution is deducted from the amount you receive so that amount can't be used to fund a loan etc. 

An idea I've thought of and not sure if its been discussed but for squad size how about saying academy players from the club of any age don't need to be registered, so if you set a 20 player squad limit the more academy players you have in your 1st team squad the bigger it can be. Would really encourage youth development.

Salary cap is a good idea as long as its just don't think it should limit the amount per player but a general overall limit if a club wants to go and spend a load on one player let them but limits spending on other players.

Interesting idea. I’d go further and say ‘own academy prospects who live within x mile radius’ (perhaps 50 miles or something). 
 

That way, it stops the big clubs hoovering up all the talented kids and ensures it’s only the true, local kids.

Depends how you define that, if the family move and be local they are then within that x mile radius and doesn't stop it, it wouldn't be just the big clubs who'd miss out as well, lots of clubs pick up players who don't get offered a scholarship somewhere else and would penalise them for a player they'd have had through that process.

I Really like that idea - it would encourage more clubs to do the right thing and whilst not for everyone would eventually help the National team so win win for me

Yeah, not where the family live AFTER joining the club. Where the kid is born/is schooled, that sort of idea. 
The other issue can be easily solved too with some sort of exemption of they’re not offered anything in their ‘radius’. 
 

Just need to find some way, any way, of stopping the poaching of kids.

Frankly I'd introduce a quota/limit of how many players the academy can sign from other clubs, would allow for those they deemed 'the best' to move to the highest standard but otherwise local kids brought in

Things might be moving a bit more...

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8476779/Championship-clubs-eye-18m-salary-cap-vote-mooted-radical-reforms-transfer-deals.html

Some key points to pull out- I'm liking a number of ideas in it.

Quote

Under a series of proposed reforms seen by Sportsmail, the EFL are seeking to gauge support for the introduction of an £18million salary cap, with a spending tax to be imposed on clubs who breach the limit.

I'd be pretty lukewarm if that was the lot.

Quote

That would be shared out among their rivals, which would replace existing profit and sustainability rules. If the proposals developed by the Championship financial control working party gain sufficient support, the EFL will hold a formal vote at the end of the month, with a view to bringing them in before the transfer window and the start of next season.

Bit better.

Quote

Key elements include:

  • The introduction of a total squad salary cap of £18m, including all taxes, image rights and bonus fees, but with no limit on individual player salaries.
  • Deductions from the cap to be permitted for the wages of Under 21 players, any income from loan deals and payments received as a result of promotion and/or success in cup competitions.
  • A five per cent 'overrun facility' to be included allowing clubs to breach the cap by a small margin, but with a spending tax to be imposed on those who exceed the buffer. The tax would be on a sliding scale - 50p for every £1 overspend up to £600,000, £1 for every £1 from £600,000-£900,000 and £3 for every £1 over £900,000 - and the money shared equally between Championship clubs complying with the cap.
  • Special dispensation for clubs relegated from the Premier League in receipt of parachute payments, who would be permitted to register contracts they committed to prior to relegation at a divisional average wage - proposed at £720,000 a year based on a cap of £18m.
  • Maintaining a squad size of 25, in line with the Premier League, as opposed to Leagues One and Two who are considering a cut to 22 next season, 20 a year later.

I'm liking the mix of limits and redistribution- but fines can be paid easily enough, depending on the owner.  Maybe the squad size of 25 opens the door to refusing registration of very high earners e.g.

Struggling a bit with point 4 though- does that mean that their wages would only show up as £720k per season on the books- or does it mean only those with wages below and up that wouldn't affect the risk of the spending tax.

Quote

The overrun and spending tax would be policed by the EFL, with any breaches referred to an independent disciplinary commission with penalties, including points deductions, at their disposal.

Good. A mix of enforcement- hopefully it'd be in-season monitoring too and an automatic referral to the Independent Disciplinary Commission!

A bit that is an improvement on the current regs too!

Quote

Points deductions would be automatic for clubs found to only have complied with the rules through deliberate non-disclosure of accurate information and/or providing misleading information.

This bit should be in there for FFP in fairness, or such conduct should have counted as an automatic breach under that- maybe regs were not enforced correctly under Harvey!!

Quote

The EFL have pencilled in July 29 for a formal vote if clubs opt to take them that far, though that is not guaranteed. A number of the biggest spenders are opposed to a cap, while the PFA will fight it, as Sportsmail has reported.

PFA can **** off. If players don't like it...Gordon Taylor is long overdue being shown the door. Same old problems with the first objection however.

Quote

If the salary cap and spending tax are introduced, the existing profitability and sustainability rules would be removed, but current charges against clubs such as Sheffield Wednesday and Derby would continue and they would be punished if found guilty.

Still a few things I'm not entirely happy with or think could be tweaked but liking a lot of this!

Matt Hughes a good journo though, no doubt. Disregard the publication sometimes, just look at the journo and their credibility- or lack of.
